A fascinating game of skill coupled with wit and fortune. Originating in China, its exact origins are shrouded in story and myth; the game was popularized in the United States in the early part of the 20th century. Mah Jongg is now enjoying a resurgence in popularity, with millions of dedicated players. Classes require a commitment of time and effort to become familiar with the elementary principals of the game. Patience in mastering the fine points of American Mah Jongg is repaid many times over by the keen enjoyment derived from the game.
Elizabeth Santoro has been an avid student of American Mah Jongg since 2011. She first learned to love the game in her neighborhood group. Since then she has taught classes at the Shoreline Unitarian Universalist Society, the Guilford Community Center, and Evergreen Woods Retirement Community. Elaine Sandberg’s A Beginner’s Guide to American Mah Jongg will be used as a resource. (Purchase not required)
